Criss Angel's War Against Pediatric Cancer

Criss Angel may be one of the world’s greatest illusionists, but his efforts to fight pediatric cancer are entirely real.

“Anyway that I can help make pediatric cancer disappear — I’m down.”

Angel’s son Johnny Crisstopher was diagnosed with a form of leukemia when he was only a year old.

“It doesn’t discriminate. It could affect your family, and if you hear those words that no parent wants to hear — it’s really a reality check.”

Naturally, Angel has a bigger bag of tricks at his disposal than most parents facing such a devastating situation, and he's now putting them to good use for the children and families affected.

“I’m here in anyway I can be used to help the kids that are going through this treatment.”

Three years after Johnny Crisstopher’s diagnosis, he is in remission, but Angel’s fight for the kids who face this challenge continues.

The goal of the event? To raise $5 million in one night.
